> The Mann family history will include many references to the Woody family
due to the close association and relationship of these two families for
about 150 years. The story passed down to us is that John Mann and Sam Woody
(the Parker County settler) were half-brothers. This is an area we are still
researching and have so far found no definite records to prove or disprove
this relationship. They also married sisters, Delilah Woody and Hannah
Woody, who were supposedly no relation to Sam before marriage.
> Our story begins in Tennessee on November 19, 1808, when John N. Mann was
born. We have thus far been unsuccessful in tracing his parents who were of
English descent. The area of Tennessee where the Manns lived at that time
was sometimes considered a part of North Carolina. Records of both states
must be checked and this is further complicated by the loss of many records
during the Civil War. Even the existing records are difficult to decipher
due to the handwriting and the aged, faded ink. Often the names were
misspelled such as Waddy and Marr. The earliest definite records are the
Roane County, Tennessee, marriage records showing:
> 25 March, 1817 - Sarnuel Woody and Hannah Woody 15 Septeniber, 1826 - John
Mann and Delilah Woody
> W. Mann solemnized marriages in this book but it is not known if he was
a. minister or a Justice of Peace. (Perhaps he is the father of John Mann
that we are searching for.)
> The Woody's had previously migrated to Tennessee from Orange County, North
Carolina, and there were Manns located there also.
> The federal census for 1830 in Roane County, Tennessee lists the following
heads of families living north of the Tennessee River:
> John Mann John Wooddy
> Samuel Wooddy Robert Wooddy
> In the next census, 1840, the John Manns were living next door to the
Brice Woodys in Roane County. Back in 1834, there is record of John Mann
deeding stock and equipment to "Brice Woody, his brother-in-law, for love
and affection. Also living nearby in 1840 were the Samuel, John and Robert
Woody families and Owen Davis who married Nancy Mann in 1834. Owen Davis was
the Justice of Peace who ten years later in Upshur County, Texas, performed
the marriage of Mary "Pop" Mann and Thomas MeCright. Another deed record was
made on Feb 1, 1844, to John Mann and Brison Woody on the waters of Lackeys
Creek (near Louisville) where it empties into the Tennessee River. In many
early Tennessee counties from the year 1800 to the 1900's, we have found
deeds, marriage bonds, aldermen, frontier volunteers, jury- men, even a
fiddling master from the Mann family but their exact relationship is un-
certain until we do further research.
